Document Submission Order

Postby Ratchet Jackson » Wed Dec 01, 2010 11:41 am

I hope this is not a dumb question but does the order that your supplemental documents are attached to your application matter? I want my documents read in a certain order for continuity purposes.

Then you have to attach them in that order. First attached = first appearing, if I remember correctly.

This.

If you attach them and then preview the PDF, you can double check the order.

I have read that the law school will reorder your documents in a prescribed manner during processing anyway. Even so, I still ordered mine in the LSAC submission, can't hurt.

Like, unfortunately enough, my addendum about a ticket I once got kept moving to the front. I'm assuming it is not a big deal... or maybe it'll seem like I'm being up-front!


Yeah, this happened to me too. It attaches documents based on when you added them to your available document list. The earlier the submissions, the higher up it gets bumped. In order to get your addendum attached last, remove it from your available documents list then re-add it. Since it will be the last submission, it should be included last on your application package.
